Look at the graph and note that strain C has the least virulence in March. Use this point in time and calculate the weighted average to determine the efficacy of the vaccine.

To calculate the weighted average, take the (March) prevalence of each strain and multiply it by the efficacy of the vaccine in the table. Then add these products. 

 

\((0.35 * 0.23) + (0.13 * 0.25) + (0.76 * 0.13) + (0.68 * 0.39) =0.447 ~|~(47.7\%)\)
